OK gang,

I'm gonna give it (1) one week before a final decision is made in regards to the "Meat Calling" contest.

Do you guys want a (1) one man single or a (2) two man team contest?

I would prefer those only with the intentions of competing reply.

Thx!!!

Because the OFOF has "underwritten" all the prize monies & gave us a huge venue to have the contest. :bow:

The 2012 OFOF was a huge success & for the first year had 30,000 people come through the doors in 2 1/2 days.

Rather than the contest "costing" DU $500.00 dollars out of the state fund, we will be totally flush!!!

If this venue works out, this will become the norm for the next several years.

Only (1) one week away gang!!!

I've been getting numerous px calls & the number 1 question is:

"How much is it to enter the contests???"

It's FREE!!!

With the City of Apopka & the OFOF undrwriting the entire contest, there's no need to charge an entry fee to this years event.

To those that are not & would like to become a DU member, we'd would glady accept that donation of $35,00 dollars!!!
